They're inexpensive enough. Why not order both and see which comes easiest to you. There's probably a minim order anyway? When I first went to America in the seventies, American tuners were using fiddly bits of rubber wedges in uprights. It all seem

There aren't any Yamaha reps on here, so I will just say Kawai is better. Does that help? I personally prefer the sound of Kawais to Yamaha, but again my preference is just that--personal. If a tech blesses the RX, it certainly doesn't sound like a

Thanks for the Christmas wishes, I have just been to the company Christmas party so it is beginning to feel a lot like the merry season. This year I have asked Santa (again) for a Steinway, but would settle for a Bosendorfer.

I've never seen it in print before, but the thought has occurred to me more than once, that fewer piano dealers would ever go out of business if they were to offer a 'lifetime service contract' to customers (aka coordinating piano service through the

Oh, and while on the topic of cats and pianos, for those of us who don't happen to have a Bosendorfer Imperial, if you can get your cat to purr, then it will produce the same frequencies as the additional bass notes of the Bosendorfer. I prefer a li

For under $500, you're prett much looking at Casio Privias, which are very good for the price. You also might want to see if you can find a used Korg SP-250. Best of luck!

You have (at least) two different questions here: used vs. new, and Kawai vs. Yamaha. Yamaha vs. Kawai, only you can decide which you like better. Both make excellent pianos. New vs. used: have an independent tech evaluate that RX6. If he says
